Windows Vista Beta 1 and Longhorn Server Beta 1 include a new implementation of the TCP/IP protocol suite known as the Next Generation TCP/IP stack. The Next Generation TCP/IP stack in Windows Vista and Windows Server Longhorn is a complete redesign of TCP/IP functionality for both IPv4 and IPv6 that meets the connectivity and performance needs of today's varied networking environments and technologies. Elsewhere, will Office 12 be named... Office Mondo?

they rewrite there TCP/ip stack, which in the old days they took form BSD. then they evolve it to what we have today which is a mess, so they do a rewrite to clean it up and make sure IPv6 is fully supported and stuff .

so they call this next gen TCP/IP?

It's a myth that MS took their TCP/IP stack from BSD, they only took some userland tools such as ftp and telnet from BSD. BTW, IPv6 has been supported by *BSD TCP/IP stacks for a long time... possibly it was the first to implement ipv6.
